The Hanley Awards

The Annual Hanley Awards is the high point of the year for our owners. This black-tie gala is held on Saturday night at each Getaway. It is an Oscar-like awards program recognizing video excellence in our HVSN studios.
Be a winner at the Hanleys!

It all starts in April and May when studios begin submitting their best projects of the year in several categories to a panel of judges. Then, on Wednesday night of the Getaway in July, three nominees are announced for each category. At the Hanley Awards our Master Ceremonies Andy Conte (who is a studio owner and who coined the term "The Hanleys") announces each category, reads the names of the nominees, then open the envelope and reads the winner's name. As the winner comes up to accept their award we show a short clip of the winning entry on our big video screen. Here's a list of the categories that we recognize:
  1. Best Photo Keepsake Video
  2. Best Documentary
  3. Cut and Paste Award for Editing
  4. Best Video Production
  5. Best Event Video
  6. Best Short Video
  7. Best Long Form Video
  8. Best Sports Video
  9. Best TV/Web Video
  10. Best Memorial Video
  11. Best Company Promo

  13. Best Rookie Video
  14. Best Use of Post Production
  15. "Dr. Strangelove" Award

Here's what we'll cover at Show ‘N Tell Saturday.

- The number one thing we'll cover is making money in the video business. I'll cover pricing video as well as collecting the money. What's the difference between a $500.00 video and a $5000.00 video? Are you leaving money on the table? I'll teach you how we do it! Oh... what about a $30,000.00 video?

- This is the great unknown for most people who attempt to enter our industry. How do you get business and find clients? I'll share with you.

- I'll cover our 12 month and 21 day in person training program in depth. How do we take you from where you are now to where you want to be? We are very good at this as long as you can take that first step and get to Show ‘N Tell!

- You'll be in my studio all day so we'll definitely get into the nitty gritty on equipment and gear. How will you outfit your studio? Do you have current equipment that can be used? Maybe and if so that will save you some money.

- Our goal is for you to make $5000.00 per week in your new video business. I'll take you through our core principles and provide you with a clear understanding of how you can reach your goals. Making money is easy if you can follow our plan.

- Not everyone is out to make a fortune. Home Video Studio is a very fun and exciting business and lifestyle. Want to turn your hobby into a real live functioning studio? We can do that for you. Want to get your family involved in the business? We'll help train them. This is a very family friendly business.

- We'll discuss transitions and getting started. Going to quit your job? Come out of retirement? Convert a 401k? Will you work the studio part time until you can go full time? We will start designing a plan for you at Show ‘N Tell Saturday.

- It takes about $74,000.00 to start your Home Video Studio. Some people are shocked at this. Others find the money. I am an expert at funding if you need to find the money. One of the things we do on Saturday afternoon is cover financing. It's not that difficult. If you need consultation on funding call me.

I suggest you bring your spouse/partner to our Show 'N Tell Saturday. That's our treat. You'll know a whole lot more about running a Home Video Studio by end of day on Saturday!
